Volunteer Work Schedule and Hours:

The Healthy Eating Department seeks volunteers who are available 3-5 hours a month. The schedule is irregular and will depend on when recipe cards are produced and require editing. Volunteer will receive and edit Spanish version of recipe card via email. They will then return to Recipe Production Coordinator within 48 hours of receiving the document.

Position Location: Editing will not occur at the Capital Area Food Bank; volunteers will work from offsite locations

Impact of this volunteer opportunity: The Healthy Eating Department’s focus is to create nutrition standards, increase the demand for healthy foods and build self-reliance through our education and training programs. The main role of the Spanish Language Recipe Card Volunteer is to enhance the outreach and effectiveness of the HFP Program.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to create access to good, healthy food in every community.


In a region as large as metropolitan Washington, ensuring everyone has access to good, healthy food takes a significant community effort-which is why we partner with over 450 nonprofit organizations in DC and the surrounding region. Together, we provide 30 million meals to almost half a million area residents, every year. And because we know that food alone won’t solve hunger, we also address the root causes of hunger through multiple education programs and innovative service delivery partnerships.

It’s a big undertaking. And it’s all made possible by the generosity of our donors, the hard work of our partners, and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.
